WCGC Go for Grammar!


The Go for Grammar! Programme itself consists of a series of themed ‘workshop’ events which take place on Saturdays throughout the academic year.  Each workshop has an overall theme and will include Mathematics and English tutorial sessions, run by members of the Westcliff High School for Boys’ teaching staff, covering material that is relevant to 11 Plus examination questions.  Workshop themes for the 2021/2022 academic year are:

Saturday 9 October 2021 – Adventure and Leadership

A series of exciting outdoor tasks run by Army and Royal Navy cadets from our Combined Cadet Force (CCF).

Saturday 13 November 2021 – Creative

Pupils will have sessions in Art, Music and Technology to learn new creative skills.

Saturday 15 January 2022 – Humanities

Activities in Philosophy, Volcanoes and World War II will challenge the pupils during these sessions.

Saturday 5 March 2022 – Science

The Chemistry of Sweets and Magic of Magnets will accompany a Biology activity for budding Scientists.

Saturday 7 May 2022 – Multi-sports

Action packed summer sporting opportunities that are fun for all

The workshops commence at 9.00am and finish at 3.00pm. Children attending will need to bring a packed lunch on the day.  To offer as many local Year 5 children as possible the opportunity to attend a workshop, each child will be offered one workshop place following receipt of an on-line application (see below).  Please select your child’s choice of workshop in order of preference when applying.  We will do our best to accommodate each child’s preferences.  Workshop attendance is priced at £10.  There will be no charge to attend for those children in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding

Online applications open in July 2021 and close on 30 September 2021.  We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Westcliff High School for Boys.
